When Wastecorp works with consulting engineers and operators on sewage treatment plant improvements, we look to limiting the footprint inside the plant due to the advanced pumping and filtration requirements [...]
We get a lot of questions from WWTP’s and public works departments asking about the differences between regular trash pumps on a trailer with diesel engines and dry prime pumps. The following question from a municipal pump operator exemplifies the discussion:
Hi, we use your double disc pumps at our primary scum pumping operation but we also have a need for a dry prime pump or a regular trash pump for pumping out our digesters for
We are quickly approaching the season where maple-sugaring equipment comes into high demand in Northern areas of the United States and Canada. As a pump manufacturer, Wastecorp sees two very common client needs: The first is to design and manufacture pumps for maple syrup farms with between 400 and 600 taps. The second...
Mud Sucker 2FA Series Diaphragm pumps are known for their versatility for oil collection systems, especially waste trap grease, transmission fluids and motor oil. Many of our innovative customers also design their own collection systems. In the installation you see here, one customer used two Mud-Sucker 2FA-EC (electric) diaphragm pumps to set up a new waste oil collection system at a city bus depot. The bus depot collects motor oil and transmission oil in drain pans. The waste is then gravity fed into two, 275 gallon collection tanks, each tank having a pump and float system. The oil is then sucked up and discharged into a common 2″ riser travelling up 25 feet. The oil travels horizontally for 161 feet and then drops 25 feet into a larger storage tank. The suction and discharge height are well within the limits of these Mud-Sucker pumps.
With pumping applications, one of the challenges you face especially when pumping thinner liquids, is to maintain continuous flow without “jerking the hose” or disruptions in pump productivity. One of the consulting engineering firms we have worked with in California illustrates this point well:
We recently asked municipal operators who had either a Penn Valley double disc pump or Wastecorp Sludge Pro double disc pump what they would like to see in future product offerings for sewage pumping. [...]
Industrial companies, transit authorities, railways and public infrastructure areas can face unique challenges when it comes to pumping out catch basins and sumps during heavy rain and other storms. [...]
Dry Prime Pumps for Water Authorities and Cities. Water Authorities typically have a need for high flow rate, high suction and discharge pumps for their applications. Dry prime pumps are one of the [...]
One of the topics that we often review at Wastecorp is customers requesting low shear pumps that don’t completely destroy the fluid or solids being pumped. With a low shear pump the fluid is pumped [...]
